Oh, it was squee-worthy.
Saturday night I was in a 10-man taking on a nerfed Mimiron when I got a tell from a fellow guild member, Sprouts. Understand that while the guys out-number the gals in Foed, there is still a good handful of women that log in regularly. However, Sprouts and I are probably the most ... dedicated/obsessed. And, everyone loves Sprouts. How can anyone NOT love Sprouts?
Anyway, she sent me a tell 'Are you busy tomorrow?'. I say 'Not in the morning, but there's the raid in the evening'. She says 'Wanna get together for brunch/lunch? Deno (her fiance and also fellow guild member) and I are in Salina.'.
Oh, hell yes!
But she said they have to leave by 1, to make it home in time for the raid. I, of course, totally undestand. ROFL
So, we started making plans.
I gloated about this in the family chat channel and a thought finally dawned on me. Mustafar also lives in Lawrence, bet he would like to join. But, just in case the invitation was deliberately sent just to me, I told Sprouts, 'You know, Musta lives in Lawrnece, too."
So, Musta joined in the plans.
And lunch was good! No surprise, Sprouts and Deno are good company in person, as well as from behind a computer.
But stupid, stupid me (I blame being in a fight the whole time the conversation occurred) I failed to think about the fact that Aurora (guild member and personal friend) ALSO lives in Lawrnce AND my yougest brother is less than an hour away.
Last night I was suitably chastized by brother, forgiven by Aurora (who was asleep anyway and who's phone was dead), but also chastized by yet another guild member, who points out he lives in Junction City. In my defense, I had NO idea about that last.
But, I got to meet Sprouts! (and Deno: that was cool, too)
